Valentine Images Up Close

 When I first started collecting Valentine's and still today,
 I take out the magnifying glass allowing me to see details up close.
I love each Valentine and it's pretty images.
One day, I want to photograph each Valentine up close!
If we are without power during/after the New England Blizzard this weekend it may be the perfect time to do this.
The Valentine Tea Party being held this Sunday had to be cancelled until the following Sunday..after Valentine's Day..:(
Everyone has to be off the roads tomorrow by noon, demanded by our Mayor..
I know what I will be doing during the snow fall. Be safe to those looking to be buried under 2 + feet of snow.
Come on over to Charm of Home

Your pictures are so clear and I can see every detail.
I want some of your snow, I miss not getting much this year, although the season isn't over yet.
I hope you keep your power and stay safe and warm.

These Valentines are just the sweetest. The little angel playing the banjo stole my heart. It is a treat to get to see them close up too. Your camera is doing wonders with these pictures. Enjoy your snow this weekend, how I wish I had some of it.

Hi Shirley,

You have such a beautiful collection of Valentine's! Be safe during the storm. They say we are looking at 10"-14" tonight.

The valentines are ever. I think the details are wonderful. I love the shadings.

Take great care!

Your vintage Valentine's are so lovely! I collect vintage cards and other ephemera from the past, too.
Thanks for sharing your paper pretties with us!!
Happy (early) Valentine's Day!

So beautiful and so delicate. Stay safe and warm! Sorry about your Valentine lunch.

I could never choose a favorite -- all of your Valentines are so special! The doggy getting a bath under the water pump is delightful.

We received a foot of snow Thursday evening. That is plenty for me. Stay warm and safe as you recover from the storm.

You have a nice group of vintage cards. They are definitely keepers.
